BIOTECHNOLOGY


DEPARTMENT PROFILE


Department of Biotechnology was established in the year 2004, and is designed to provide specialized and scientific learning along with skill improvement trainings to help the students to explore towards various career paths in agriculture, healthcare, forensics, industrial, pharmaceutical fields. In this vision we organize many programs. The main purpose of the program is creation of well informed human resources who have the ability to work in Government, Semi Government, private and public sectors owned by Biotechnology Organizations, and also to take responsibility of administrative positions.

Biotechnology is considered as applied field of life science. The studies includes utilization of biological system to develop different products. The main objective of this course is to provide basic knowledge and idea for advanced studies in Biotechnology among undergraduate students. In this course, students will learn about a combination of many different topics which includes Biochemistry, Microbiology, Immunology, r DNA technology, Plant Tissue Culture and Animal Cell Culture and their applications in welfare of human.

The students have opportunity to opt Biotechnology in two combinations. Chemistry, Zoology and Biotechnology and Chemistry, Botany and     Biotechnology. Our Department has well equipped laboratories, including Plant Tissue Culture laboratory. We focus on educating students with respect to developing Biotechnological aspects that includes. In this direction, our department organizes workshops, seminars, guest lectures, field visits, and visit to Research centers and along with these we organize student oriented activities like model making competitions, poster presentations and student seminars.

This course not only increases the knowledge among the students, it also build the confidence to work in Industrial, Teaching and Research areas. Along with that students also acquire the ability of entrepreneurship.

COURSE COMBINATION
